"A lot of. Drag styles for her own looks when she is presenting female, Almond was accepted for that and It's come to a pass where a lot of the words that we use. To talk about oppression have filtered down to idiots. So people are throwing around words like oppression and appropriation in Cetera et cetera without knowing what they mean and sometimes very intelligent people are talking about the problems of appropriating culture and sometimes idiots are typing on facebook about it and what it comes down to the end of the I can't judge whether she is appropriating or doing a good thing or a bad thing or whatever. I can see what she was doing as an artist you wanted to do something new. And I. Don't I don't feel anything about the audiences the rejected her because the same audiences that accepted lady Gaga's whatever that was you know we'll Elvira mistress of the dark I mean you know Cassandra Peterson considers herself a drag queen and So it's like there's there's no, there's no hard line. All there is is what people accept and buy as a mass audience in what people don't. So all you can do really as an artist is think about what you WANNA do next to and do it and see if it succeeds and if you want to keep doing it despite failure, keep doing it, I guess try to be moral try not to. Steal ideas and spread hatred. Queens not to steal ideas. Good luck. I know the whole concept behind dragon wasn't you know? Senators US up on stage I. Think we're say a drag queen is anyone who transform themselves into a beautiful creature of their own imagination. So you know make space for everybody drag like anything is a little and that can be and like any tool. It can be wielded for good and for bad it drags not a good thing drag as just a thing and it can be good or bad depending on how we use it. So I don't know it is it is completely neutral. And a blush brush you can contour yourself beautiful or contour yourself be is that exactly exit boost? And sometimes you know the beauty is the beast and vice versa, right? Yeah. I again in the case of Lady Bunny. But What you're talking about all these things that you're talking about obviously mean a lot to me because this is the world. That I live in and as it's changing I'm struggling to keep up with all of these changes. It can be a very emotional process and the only thing that I can use as a compass or a Northstar is that drag should be promoting acceptance and whatever we need to do to keep that sight. That's what we need to do if it means including more people if it means finding bigger audiences than fine. So long as it doesn't become something that's hateful or small well, I mean, I'm very inspired by all your articles in Slate magazine and you certainly written quite a bit about the the dynamics of SIS gender straight women and drag and Drag conquering cable in two thousand Seventeen Ram? Certainly. This is GONNA be a huge year for a lot of people. Is there any kind of training that people can have in order to not burn bridges or stay happy or you know I see some of these drag queens and even Bob like we saw Bob Drag Khan and he was just look like. Oh my God this over a track around overhead, and you know, and I saw this like a tweet on on. On Some fan wanted to have a photo taken with him and Babushkas like baby I'm just too tired. You know. And the and the fans fucking losses shit like a little kid who the mother wouldn't by them in the toy or a piece of candy the Checkout Line supermarket you know and the old days kid would just cry in the backseat on the way home but now the kids can. I. Drag Mara. The photo. Just Bob didn't smile in the photo the way he wanted. Bob. SORTA was. Smiling photos. WELL BOB SMILE WITH S. Smile around. But you know into me I'm just like. You know heavy as had the head that wears the crown. I don't know if I would deal with any better. In fact, I think I would probably be even worse. Well, listen. You. Make. Choose you make wise. Listen. By John Cage in which I sit here for three minutes in total silence and you guys contemplate now. We can do that. That would be nice. No airtime we we could meditate. So maybe which the audience an opportunity to just brave. Let's just get on instagram live with Alexis Michelle and meditate. Seems. I like that I do too because I'm not on instagram live So the the thing is that. Before I doing drag, I was working a ten to six job in fundraising I hated every minute of it. It was going to kill me. And I was self. In order to hide. The ugliness of my life for myself. So drag was away from me to escape that and save myself and I made a devil's deal and we all drag Queens make devils deal. We escaped what other people experience into this. Life that's difficult and different, but it's the choice that we made to to leave behind the suffering that we had before. So I think that there are reasons to become exhausted but I don't think that there are any excuses. We are not mining diamonds here. We can smile every time we're in public, and if we can't smile, we can be in private in our apartments. Diamond, miners get X. Rayed. So they don't steal a diamond swallow it. I mean that doesn't surprise me at all. They get shot when they strike in. South. Africa. Are we under those kind of conditions? Absolutely not I think you can pull the small fine muscles. Face to either side and create a smile for a picture. Do I think that I will every time? Absolutely not am I going to be a.

"Not saying that's good or bad. I'm I'm pretty I'm pretty animated. I call that passion. I remember when we were campaigning in Texas. Someone pulled me aside and say, hey, I just want to give you some free advice move around too much when when you talk. I am who I am. And I really do think that we all want to get past the pettiness the personal attacks. I am what I am. And what he an is gorgeous. So the the new Republic, which is a thinking man's lefty publication put out an article on Friday. The day of battles announcement. Was fairly critical of the day. I will celebrate as a holiday for the rest of my life because Beto on north amounts McVay onboard Smith. So I'm being led to believe by the mainstream media that they're just so in love with Beto and Calloway top tier Jack top tier in polling top tier fundraising wa-. Remember, they covered him on MSNBC and CNN wall to wall standing on the coffee table there in Iowa. Google searches the profound empty. Search is probably what the hell who the hell is this guy, and why are people paying attention to him from the new Republic, the profound emptiness of better O'Rourke. What is months-long tease about a presidential run tells us about his candidacy and his character. And this is from the smart progressives. Right. Some of compared him to Barack Obama with whom he shares a message of optimism unity, but the comparisons. And there he has all of Obama's self-assurance with none of his intellectual fortitude. Inspirational biography or Tory power his rhetoric is is is empty as platforms. Okay. Spending wants twenties nameless musician as a rook constantly reminds us is hardly the stuff of dreams of my father, which is a decent point. Yeah. I don't think it's an indictment of a guy. But but you gotta have something. Did write a book and his community organizing thing he spent a lot of time walking around poor communities talking to people about issues trying to organize trying to do stuff. Right. That is a different thing than saying. I was in a rock band. Yes. And got a DUI once. Right. And why do you want to be president or exactly what's going on there? I probably heard five times that he'd been arrested for burglary as young man NPR NPR is now calling it arrested for trespassing. He trespassed in a locked building that he and his buddy broke into at night trespassing. How do you like that charges were dropped now that might be a white privilege thing which he speaks about over the weekend. Well, or his dad was powerful in local politics. I mean, my dad was not I was a white kid. I have been busted for burglary. Also getting hit from the left the New York Times with a a column in bed. Works announcement wife. Silence. Stands out better work being beaten up for the fact that he did a three minute announced. But with his wife sitting next to him on the couch, and she never spoke. I didn't notice. I don't care that bother me about that video. I saw was she gazed lovingly at him the entire time. She never turned toward the camera psych out. Hey, lady, we're over here. I'm not into the whole spouse thing, but this me neither. Gets into a little bit of the left Eton her own because they're just there's no way you can. Check all the boxes. There's nobody can check all the boxes. No. I enjoy this stuff so much in the New York Times with the column over the weekend, one of their columnists, and this I'm so sick of wives being forced to silently gays. Why didn't include her when I run for president? My husband will be in the background. Feeding. Our cats. Oh, yeah. You could add a brilliant rollout. Like Elizabeth Warren where she Hughes joined by her husband earned the kitchen. Thanks for being here. Honey. Sure. Okay. Thanks for being here. I live here. He doing a ding bet. And then I mentioned that slate magazine also had a I don't have their headline in front of me. But it was the there's there's no there there headline to his candidacy. I was misled by the mainstream media that he was that. He was going to be a thing. I guess I'm wrong. And then I as I mentioned I talked to a college kid. I won't they are. Sure slate headline Beethoven twenty twenty has no reason to exist. Exactly. And he doesn't he has absolutely no answer for anything. And on the talk show round tables yesterday. They said you can maybe pull that off in your first couple of days. But you get a couple of weeks into this. And you still you you still have no answer for anything are you for or against impeachment? Do you support? Or don't you support the green deal? Do you really want to tear down all the border wall? Yeah. What's your position yet? Some point you probably you're going to have to take. Well, you will and it'll be fun to watch. But anyway, you're saying you your college friend. I talked to a young person in college who I thought would be just a very enthused about Beto on the Davis announcement and said, oh, please what a fraud. So how? Yeah, it now there weren't people saying that about Obama when he got in is he in the energetic partner left. The inner the college kids the new Republic, the slate magazine, they weren't saying, oh, please. What a fraud about Obama when he got publicans saying that he's never accomplished anything, which politically speaking was true. But. Yeah. No, not on the left, certainly. So is it possible? He she or it who you spoke to is a big fan of say, I don't know Bernie and just doesn't want anybody to get in Bernie's way. One. If you're really a Scott Walker guy, you're putting down Marco Rubio. They don't they don't have a horse race at this point. But I think that I think this person's fairly typical of the young person canvas for Bernie Sanders last time around I think, this is pretty typical of the young energetic. Progressives might my view of least to magazine headlines in talking to one person he does not have the backing of that crowd. And you're to get the nomination without the backing of that crowd. It just ain't gonna happen. I can't remember which the dimwitted news channel. I was listening to on the way in this morning put they were talking in adoring terms about his fundraising and is Google searches clearly in the top tier? Oh, no doubt. And he. Yeah. He do raise more money than anybody's ever raised in the first twenty four hours. Right. I was happy to see that. There are facing progressives who looked at that magazine cover and said, and what so are you defer relieving college debt, or I mean, you're standing a dirt road with your hands in your pockets down labrador retriever. Looking very very wholesome ANSA. So I'm glad there's a little more. I don't know. Intellectual something or other going on in candidate in. I thought maybe we had gotten so shallow that just you know, you launch in Vanity Fair does Somany liebowitz cool shots, and you don't ever need to take a position that would work. Well, it ain't over yet. True. Hang on hang on there. Still time for shallow to triumph. We'll have to see on the other hand one of the delights of the whole Trump run. And listen, I'm not gonna deny it. I was pretty harshly critical at Trump. I said I wanna eat my truck of ever the nominee. Let alone the president will right, right? Truck eaten son of a gun. Anyway, his chances were before he before he ever ran. But it was absolutely delightful to see the conventional media wisdom knocked over over and over and over again. Sure. And and so yeah. Sure position Vado exploded. That's good. Trump was controversy yelled. Trump was controversial because he had strong positions on day one about NAFTA. Obviously about immigration right to the point of being like off putting early in the process. Still quote, his initial speech there at the bottom of the escalator. That's a great point opposite of Beto. Right. Right. But beco- could lead us to the enjoyment of seeing the mainstream media looking like idiots again. So that would be fun. I was surprised so I think Beddoes over although he's got a ton of money. That's gotta make him think. All people love me got if he can great test case, it is the the vacuous earliest Beto, how far can he go supported by the winds of cable news and various,.

The Chicago Tribune dubbed this woman that Reagan was talking about who may actually have been white. I don't remember exactly what race she was. But she actually went to jail for defrauding the welfare program, and it was the Chicago Tribune that called her a welfare Queen and not Ronald Reagan that had been just attributed to him. It was a myth. It was ally. And that was in a left-wing article by slate magazine the other day, maybe they had a, you know, confused with Barney Franken as the dancing Queen. Kind of Queen.

"And one of the ways that both scientists and heads of robotics companies to just name two examples have figured out how to deal with this is the same way you actually deal with violence that humans are doing to one another which is that the introduce robots to the communities in which those robots will reside. So they give them a name or they explain to them exactly what the robot is therefore, and what it will do. And the experts say that if you do that it's just like introducing a human of people know why the robots are they're they're less likely to do them harm now. Whether or not that's a good thing in the long run that remains to be seen, and it's not something really got into. But if you do wonder.

"Welcome to hip rain, a podcast of pop chart history from slate magazine about the hits from coast to coast. I'm Chris Milan. Chart. Analysts pop critic and writer of slates wise, the song number one serves on today's show. Happy holidays from all of us at kit parade in the spirit of the season. We're going to play abounding of Christmas hits not all of them Christmas music. But all of it is in a very specific way. Very british. Confused. Why am I playing this eighties? Synth pop song what do the pet? Shop boys have to do with the holiday season. Well, their version of always on my mind reach number one in the United Kingdom in late December nineteen eighty-seven which means pet. Shop boys. Always on my mind has gone down in the history books as part of a very specific literally provincial pop chart tradition. I will confess as an American follower of the pop charts. Every december. I am deeply envious of my friends in the United Kingdom because in no country in the world are the pop charts followed so avidly as they are in Great Britain. This is basically true year round. The UK is a smaller country than the US and a larger proportion of British citizens seem to feel a more proprietary ownership of their pop charts, then many Americans feel about their billboard charts. But at no time of year is British chart following more intense than at the holidays. The Brits have even made an annual national pastime out of it. Well, both going full time to spot and the world of music the Christmas. No more. It's lor. Total war. For forty five years now all of England. I mean, the whole country not just chart obsessed music nerds like me has made a sport of what song would top the charts the week of Christmas, the competition, even generates wagers with British pubs bookies and betting parlors. It is covered in UK newspapers on the telly and on the radio on BBC radio one. So then this is web or about to find out. What's going to happen for Christmas number one this year and in the run-up to the holiday in November and December British chat shows analyze the contenders. And try to predict what elements will bring about a Victor sixties wall of sound as vibe, it's compete with say slave bells and fell chimes. I did not really necessary some people comparing it said like right Kerry, while there are patterns to the kinds of songs that tend. To do well in this perennial. Sweepstakes often the winner is a fluke to be sure many years the UK Christmas number one has been predictable or best selling Christmas song. But just as often the Victor has been a straight up pop blockbuster that happened to peek at just the right time of year. Cover songs are also notorious for doing well in the Christmas number one competition. Two. And then there have been freak years. Where the unlikely winner is a sticky pudding of a novelty song that will never be heard from again except on UK Christmas number one commemorative shows like this one. As silly. As all this might seem the chart competition in old Blighty is taken quite seriously. Indeed each year certain British songs are recorded and specifically timed for the Christmas chart and head to head battles between warring singles are quite common. In fact, some legitimate holiday classics have found themselves falling just shy in a tough year. One

"This particular story is kind of near and dear Tema hard because it is about podcasting and I, I have been kinda hinting at this for a while talking about it. Boy, I, the rumbling is growing louder over time and I, I totally buy into this and I'm like, there's a lot of liberty to what they're saying. So to give you the rundown, this is gonna be a little bit of info dump here at the beginning. So just bear with me. I'm getting this from CJ are dot org. Says podcasting was to post to be one of the saviors of digital media, inexpensive addicting, profitable and popular. But now it's like the old line from baseball legend Yogi Berra. That place is so popular. No one goes there anymore. Penalty, Penelope, I don't know. Panoply, panoply, and other review. L. the podcasting unit set up by slate magazine recently laid off most of its staff and says, it will now become just a distributor of podcast rather than the creator of them despite what appeared to be a strong support for us existing podcast and on Wednesday, BuzzFeed announce. It was also laying off staff at his podcasting unit. The company said it will continue to do podcast, but won't have a dedicated team the way it used to. And we'll now mostly use freelancers rather than staff. Audible audio arm of retail, giant. Amazon also laid off some staff from is podcasting unit recently. They go on to say. So if one of the benefits of podcasting was that they made good money. Why are companies like BuzzFeed shutting down or downsizing their operations. One obvious answer is a glut of supply in twenty fifteen. A list of must listen podcast was two hundred items long at some point. Yeah, right. At some point, even podcasting aficionados started to wonder who had the time to listen to all these podcasts. A similar thing happened with video after everyone pivoted. It's a short form video because Facebook said at one of the as much as possible after creating teams of people to produce them monetization fail to follow in part because Facebook never wrote out a reliable way of doing it and has now moved on to focus on longer form video for its watch feature in many video teams at newspapers and news websites were left twisting in the wind. The ironic thing about podcasts is that despite their flaws, they remain one of the best ways for media outlet or publisher, even an individual to connect with an audience of passionate supporters and pull them into a long term relationship, but they are also time consuming and at a time when many media companies including giants, like BuzzFeed are under pressure for revenue, they probably aren't the slam dunk solution that a lot of companies are looking for it. And so even highly creative podcasts like like some of the ones buds fee created, can't find a home which is unfortunate. Now, none of this is to say that podcasting is dead. Just that like anything else, it requires an investment of time and money to do well something that not every media company has a lot of right now. Perhaps it was always made more sense as a niche market for passionate few rather than the next big solution to the media's fifty financial woes. So go ahead, go ahead Mel. This is what happens when everybody. He tries to make everything about money. I mean, as we sit here on a podcast, right? Yes, we've grown from episode zero and Mike has since come out the closet and we have upgraded to, you know, we have decent equipment and sure we..
